DANIEL MERRIAM

Daniel Merriam is an American artist who grew up in rural Naples, Maine as one of seven children.  He studied mechanical and architectural design at Central Maine Vocational Technical Institute. He later worked for his family’s design and construction business and as an architectural and commercial illustrator. The influence of his architecture background is easily detected in his many paintings of houses. He is widely regarded as a technical master of painting, with intricate detail and precise use of color. He has had exhibitions in the United States, Europe and the Middle East. Merriam’s awards include several first-place Broderson Awards and the first-place New England Scholastics Press Association Award for editorial cartooning. In 1987, he received an Honorary Masters of Humane Letters from the University of New England in recognition of the potential social contribution of his work. Merriam’s work is included in the public collections of The Riverside Museum of Art, Merrill Lynch, The Gesundheit! Institute, the Manhattan Club, among others.
